This year, four professors had their portrait taken because of their exceptional achievements in their field. The portraits are intended for the Senate Room. The Senate Gallery will see the addition of the portraits of Nobel Prize winner Ben Feringa, anthropologist Marjo Buitelaar, religion psychologist Hetty Zock, and genetic epidemiologist Marike Boezen, who passed away in 2021.
